SPONSOR - GIBBY

Gibby

January 10th, 2015, Update - Gibby continues to be the placid, easy going, wise old man of our centre. Currently he enjoys a gentle ride out into the bush each morning where he is tethered to enjoy the lush grass that is growing well at the moment. Our Yard Manager, Ebrima, is usually the one to ride Gibby out in the morning, with just a headcollar on his head and a saddle pad on his back - not the way you might expect someone to ride a stallion out back here in the UK! Gibby is looking very healthy at the moment and certainly seems to be enjoying his retirement at the GHDT centre.

**

Gibby has been owned by the Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust for a number of years, but only recently came back to live at our centre. Until now Gibby was loaned out to a Gambian family who lived in a very remote area of the country, and required a horse to do the work on their farm. Gibby has not only worked hard as a farm horse, ploughing the fields and sowing seeds, but he has also been invaluable as a form of transport for the family. Living in a remote area of Gambia can be difficult in many ways, and the lack of any motorised transport is one of the things that adds to this. By having Gibby to pull their cart, the family were able to take their farm produce to markets further afield, and also to provide essential transport to their friends and family when they needed to get to the hospital.

Gibby has spent a number of years working very hard for the family who took care of him, but he is now reaching a mature age for a Gambian horse, and the family felt that they were no longer able to provide him with the care that he would require in his older years. Knowing that Gibby had helped their family so much, they felt it would be kindest for Gibby to spend the rest of his days at our centre, where he can retire gracefully with round the clock care from our team of staff.
